Bashlin also featured new lightweight climbing belts with forged aluminum D-Rings instead of the industry standard forged steel hardware. Other products include dielectric harnesses and lanyards. These harnesses and lanyards will use snap hooks and quick-release buckles that are constructed with nylon molded over heat treated steel that will provide a minimum 9KV rating.
